    Proud new owner of an STi!

    Hey all, my name's Rob and I'm new to the forum. I finally got the car I've always wanted. Yesterday I got a Grey '07 STi Limited. I've wanted an STi forever, so I'm pretty happy to finally make my dream a reality. At first I was going to put the normal STi wing on it, but after reading around, I might not, so that I don't have cop troubles. Just wanted to say hey!

    Oh and I'm from Northern VA if anyone else on here is too.

    I really like the wing, I think it's what made it the STi and avoided confusion.

    That's what I'm leaning towards. Not only will it save me some money, but the OEM trunk is growing on me.

    Granted I'm pretty new to the STi community, I never knew the limited spoiler was that popular.

    Which wing, the limited or normal STi wing?

    IMO, the limited spoiler is what sets off that model of sti. its sleek & makes the car stand out. if i had one, i would keep it. i love wingless on regular wrx's & regular sti's.. but yours is rare. only a few hundred were made. dont change it :]

    Yes. Don't change it...of course it is your car and you can do whatever you want lol! You could always buy two more trunks so you can swap out for wingless or STi wing whenever you want lol!

    Thanks for the suggestions. I think I'll leave it on for now, mainly because it is rare, like you mentioned.

    I'm going to leave it as is, for now. I might eventually get another trunk or two in the future.

    Oh, and I forgot to mention how fun this car is to drive. My previous car was an 03 GTI 1.8t, and it's not even in the same league as this car. The only car that I've driven that was more fun was my friend's C63 AMG.

    Welcome to the forum! Congrats on the new ride.

    and IMO keep the limited spoiler, it seems like you've already made that decision.

    You got an STI Limited for a reason...it stands apart from the rest. Only 800 of them were made...I used to have one, and that Limited lip was sooooo sexy.

    Keep it.

    Congrats on your purchase!

    Actually, I lucked out with it being a limited. The only 2 that met my criteria for price/mileage were limiteds, but I know what you mean. Thanks!
